Ever since we learned that Lennox will be returning to the live action movies, everyone and anyone has expected Epps to join up with his partner-in-arms once more, and Tyrese Gibson has done us no favors with regards to him actually returning. In a Facebook post last night, he decided to throw us yet another bone but still won't confirm if he is in The Last Knight. But, it appears that he may be confirming something very soon. He posted an image of him in his gear from previous Transformers movies with the caption:

Tyrese Gibson wrote:3 guns - Not here o play any games with anybody /. ‪#‎TBT‬ I have some good news to share soon.......... Just know this.... I've seen everything you guys have posted about Epps..... I love you back!

He's one of the duo military human characters I've actually LIKED a lot in this movie franchise so for once, I actually can say I'd be glad if he's back.

No, it's how he was played. He was given an exaggerated accent (Ken Watanabe does not sound in real life quite like how Drift sounded), he used Japanese terms that Americans know but only used them out of their proper meaning because of how pop culture has constantly used those terms incorrectly, he presented himself as a well-behaved bot of honor yet kept doing lot of disrespectful and dishonorable things throughout the movie, he spoke proverbs for no reason other than his having a Japanese motif as said proverbs never fit the context of the situations in which he spoke them and which only incited ill reactions from his teammates (particularly Crosshairs)... Drift is a far cry from a respective representation of a Japanese Samurai character. Beast Wars Dinobot, or even the character-less Swordbot Samurai Team members from Transformers Go!, were far more accurate expressions of how an actual Samurai would be like.



To be fair Drift was a Decepticon before joiming the Autobots so perhaps he hasn't had time to worry about the true meaning of honour!

A point not even hinted at by the movie, as no one would know about it if not for the toy bio saying so.

Rise of the dark spark states he was a former con as well it's one of those all but confirmed things.

Plus every other Drift ever has been a former con and I'm pretty sure it's intentional I mean remember brains he is also a former con according to the prequel comics yet it's not stated in the film itself.

(Yes Rid Drift is a former con too just not stated in the show it's in a book)

Well yes, but the point is that it's a point not addressed in the movie itself - hence most viewers will not know of it. You have to dig into extra material to know this particular character trait.

A game whose story had jack all to do with the movie it was meant to tie in with (thanks to Bay forbidding any licensees from seeing the movie's script prior to the film's release).

None of those other Drifts matter to the content of the AOE movie.

What did he even do that was dishonorable? He was the most loyal and disciplined of the Autobots. At least, he tried to be.

That's what I like about the movies. You have to work for answers.

Pretty much all the movieverse bad guys are either one-dimensional or zero-dimensional. Unicron would fit right in.

And I consider that the essence of bad storytelling. A movie should provide all the relevant information to the audience within itself; audiences should not be expected to do homework or buy tie-in material to understand what is going on. When I buy a movie ticket, I expect to be paying for a whole story, not just part of a story.

Especially if said tie-in material isn't even written by the screenwriters, but left to other writers to clear up. That is the very definition of laziness.

Precisely!

And in the cases of Drift and every other unexplained/unmentioned/unexplored areas of AOE, there was next-to-no tie-in material to even provide such answers. So one couldn't even do the extra homework to get such answers since none were available at all.

That's because it is the essence of bad storytelling - at least a major part of it >:oP

You know that, and I know that. But Sly has his head burried so deep in his a- I mean, the sand, that he doesn't know that.

Mr. Plinkett for life yo 8-)

And to be fair, I don't mind having to dig for easter eggs, it's nice fan service; a main characters name shouldn't be treated that way >:oP

I remember someone saying that they never even mentioned Drift's name, I won't waste my time re-watching that movie, but if that's true, then that would explain why they don't bother explaining his backstory #-o

Yup! Forget this guy's not having a backstory in the movie, dude doesn't even get a name despite being a roughly major player in the flick.

A good Easter Egg is having Wakanda on a map in the background of Iron Man 2 like a half-dozen movies before Black Panther even shows up.

Assuming a character has the same backstory as the other incarnations in a franchise is not an Easter Egg.
